Not an enjoyable ride coming from Glengariff side. Basically a hike with your bike

Nice for a walk to see the views. Better to leave the bike at home. The riding anywhere else is far better.

Amazing hiking trail with great views. Not really any redeeming value as a stand-alone ride, unless techy loose chunk is your thing. If you must, ride it southbound. Black climb in the other direction.
